The Institute of Mathematics at TU Berlin has a vacancy for a Tenure Track Professorship in the
Algebraic and Geometric Methods in Data Analysis.
This professorship should be seen in the context of Technische Universitaet Berlin's goal to
recruit and advance junior scholars in the early stage of their career.
The tenure track professorship is initially limited to three years. The position shall be
renewed for a further three years conditional upon the postholder's performance and agreement.
After six years, as a rule, a lifelong professorship will be offered conditional upon the
fulfillment of the determined evaluation criteria and hiring requirements for a lifelong
professorship. Information about the evaluation criteria can be found on Technische
Universitaet Berlin's website, quick access 195779
The position requires research and teaching in one area of Algebraic and Geometric Methods in
Data Analysis. The area of research expertise should allow cooperations with the current
professors at the Institute of Mathematics as well as participation in current and future
collaborative research activities. Active participation in the "Berlin International
Graduate School in Model and Simulation based Research" (BIMoS) and the Berlin Mathematical
School (BMS) is also anticipated.
Teaching will be required in all mathematical degree programs (including undergraduate) and in
the service teaching of mathematics for other programs. Teaching requirements should be met in
German and English. Candidates are expected to supervise students' theses on Bachelor and
Master level as well as to participate in the academic administration of the university.
The candidate must fulfill the hiring requirements pursuant to Section 102c Berlin State
Higher Education Act in combination with Section 102a Berlin State Higher Education Act. Of
particular importance are a university degree in Mathematics or a related subject, a strong
aptitude for research demonstrated, as a rule, by an outstanding doctorate in Mathematics as
well as teaching skills demonstrated by a teaching portfolio (for further information about
the portfolio, see Technische Universitaet Berlin's website, quick access 144242).
Candidates must have an already internationally visible profile in the area of algebraic and
geometric methods in data analysis and have research results that have been published in
refereed journals. Experience in the application for grant proposals and in collaborative
research is appreciated.
Applicants must show first teaching experience at university level. First experience in
advising and supervising Bachelor and Master students is expected. Experience in academic
administration is appreciated.

strategic development of their research group and their employees. That includes activities in
promoting junior and female researchers, gender and diversity competencies in the sense of
diversity sensitive working and study conditions, substantial impulses in research and
teaching as well as contribution to academic administration. Interdisciplinary
cooperations, initiatives in science communication as well as science and technology
transfer are very welcome. As university with an international profile, we expect good
knowledge of the English language. Non-German speaking applicants are explicitly welcome while
expected to learn German quickly.
